NSWe were brought up to believe that our destiny is dictated by the alignment of the horoscopes on our birthday and an astrological sign is assigned to us. But it’s about saying: after all, there was another case.
BBC Brazil writes that over time, there has been a change in the way we see the Sun aligning itself with the different constellations of the constellations, due to the natural wobble of the Earth’s axis. And that’s not all: astronomers guarantee the presence of the 13th constellation in the zodiac (the band of the sky through which the planets, the Moon and the Sun pass): Ophiuchus (also known as Serpentarium).
Known for thousands of years, since 1925 the International Astronomical Union established the number of 88 constellations in the sky, occupying 88 regions, Ophiuchus was left outside the zodiac and his latest possible entry shook the astronomical community. This is because, in practice, someone who thinks they are Sagittarius might discover that they are, after all, Ophiuchus.
So why do we only count 12 marks? Because science loves round numbers. Yes, you read it well. It is believed that 12 constellations are chosen because there are 12 months.
